Is long-term oxycodone (opana) use safer than long-term vicodin or norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) use, since the former contains no acetaminophen which harms the liver?

Is long-term oxycodone (opana) use safer than long-term vicodin or norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) use, since the former contains no acetaminophen which harms the liver?

Possibly: Most medications are processed through your liver. Normally, a healthy liver will easily process and eliminate acetaminophen. However, if the liver is abnormal or exposed to excess amounts of acetaminophen, then severe harm could result. Remember that all opioids (opana, vicodin, etc) must be taken carefully under your physician's guidance. ...Read more

How long should I be off of norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) before having a baby?

How long should I be off of norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) before having a baby?

Depends: Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) has a short half life. It is not detectable in the urine ~4-5 days after the last use. I understand that you are trying to get off of it before conceiving a baby. You have to keep in mind that it will not be an easy quit as going off it can cause withdrawal and it may be a real problem to deal with, so if you plan to have a baby, I suggest you get off Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) way before you conceive. ...Read more

"messed up"?: If you back condition is due to trauma it should improve relatively quickly or needs specific delineation. You also mention another pain condition (migraine), and maybe a third (dry socket); so, your pain biology may be at issue. If so, then your path with opiates may be problematic and you should not continue to take more unless you look carefully at your addictcion potential. ...Read more

How long will norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) or vicodin show up on a silvia drug screen my doctors will preform?

About 24 hours.: Hydrocodone, the active ingredient in both Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and vicodin, has a relatively short half life, about 4 hours. This means that regardless of the amount of drug in your system, half of it will be eliminated in the period of the half-life. To be safe, one should allow at least four to five half-lives to pass after ingestion of the drug. 4 to 5 x 4 hours = 16-20 hours. Www. Opiatecure. Com. ...Read more
